Getafe Vs Sporting Preview and Prediction
Day: 4 May 2010
Stadium: Coliseum Alfonso Perez, Madrid
Kick off: 19:00 CET
This game carries great importance to both sides, albeit for very different reasons. Getafe is battling for the rights to play in the Europa League, while Gijon is just battling to avoid relegation. Typically in late season encounters with both sides desperately seeking points a wide open affair is not very common. Clearly Getafe has the firepower to score goals, especially at home, but Gijon is not going to engage Getafe in a shootout today.

David Cortes is, of course, banned after his dismissal at the weekend, though the right-back could be the only Geta player absent for this encounter.
David Belenguer continues to carry an injury problem and is rated as a very significant doubt, while Kepa Blanco didn’t feature last weekend.
Top scorer Roberto Soldado is not being rushed into action following his return from injury. Instead, the former Real Madrid man is building his game-time from the bench.
Probable Starting XI: Codina; M. Torres, Rafa, Diaz, Mane; Boateng, Casquero; Pedro Leon, Manu, Adrian; Miku

Francisco Maldonado has purged his suspension.
Probable Starting XI: Juan Pablo; Sastre, Hernandez, Gregory, Angel; Rivera, Camacho; Moran, De las Cuevas, Castro; Bilic
Getafe Vs Sporting Prediction:
Soccervista: Score Prediction - 3:0
Vitibet.com: Score Prediction - 2:0
Goal.com: Current form points strongly to a home win, but this is the stage of the campaign in which virtually anything can happen. Getafe haven’t broken stride too much at home all season and should have enough to pick up maximum points against their midweek rivals, though the threat of relegation may just spark Sporting into some life.
Getafe 2-0 Sporting de Gijon
